The goals of my research program are to understand environmental and neurobiological risk factors for the development of adolescent-onset neuropsychiatric disorders. This research is primarely embedded in the iBerry cohort (www.iberrystudy.nl).
This longitudinal cohort study follows 1.022 adolescents from the Rotterdam Rijnmond region. I received my Ph.D. in child psychiatric epidemiology (the Generation R Study) in 2016. Currently, I work as psychiatrist at the outpatient clinic of the deparment of psychiatry.
